I've been reading The WORST-CASE SCENARIO Survival Handbook by Joshua Piven and David Borgenicht. I've learned how to:
- Escape from quicksand
- Break into a car
- Escape from a sinking car (very important given the Governor Thomas Johnson Bridge)
- Escape from a bear
- Wrestle free from an alligator, and
- Jump from a building into a dumpster
Just today this book came in handy as I believe I may have saved a friend from a possible shark attack as sharks will perceive bling bling bikinis as tasty fish scales.
I must say, though, that I could really use some chapters on "How to survive the teenage years of a son with Asperger's," "How to get your IEP team do what's right for your child," "How to fend off your pre-teen daughter's pre-teen-ness," and "How to get through the 10 weeks of summer vacation." (And I bet a number of you could add your own chapter titles.) Right now, I'd settle for "How to make an inspired dinner when you have no inspiriation or energy." Now that would be a best-seller 10 times over.
